Oneal, 'the intellect'

JOHANNESBURG - It’s no secret that Oneal fancies himself quite the intellect so it is no surprise that he spent the evening giving an impromptu lecture to the Rubies.

At Annabel’s request, the Tswana fellow talked about the highs and lows of his career as a disc jockey.

“If I am playing you have to know that Oneal is playing.

“If I walk into the room you have to notice me among other DJs,” he crowed.

And of course with Oneal, one simple question is never met with one answer.

But instead his responses always turn into never ending sermons that stretch longer than the Nile.

Soon enough the Ruby lad went on a tangent about people who don’t laugh at your jokes.

“Those people in the process are short changing themselves of information,” he preached.

Now it is up to Africa

Last night Fatima found herself on the Eviction chopping block for the first time in her stay in the Big Brother House.

But instead of taking it personally; the Malawian has chosen to take the mature road and recognise that it’s all just part of the game. “I have no hard feelings towards anyone.

Just like people walked in and nominated me; I walked in and nominated too,” she rationalised to Feza.

The two Ruby ladies spent the evening having a girl’s chat in the bathroom; where Fatima had nothing but good things to say about her stay in the House.

“If I do go home on Sunday I am glad that I got to meet the people I met it has been a life changing experience,” she mused.

At the end of the conversation she concluded with, “Nobody is perfect. Now it is up to Africa.” No truer words have ever been spoken Fatima.

As it is now all up to The Chase viewers to let their fingers do the talking and get to voting to keep their favourite housemate in the House.

“I don’t want any more drama” — Selly

After what has been a dramatic couple of weeks; it would seem that trouble-magnet Selly is now looking for a drama free stay in the House.

Over the past five weeks Selly has seen herself at the centre of some alcohol drama with Pokello that saw the Ghanaian get                  her first Strike in the House.

She also found herself slap bang in the middle of a love triangle with Sulu and Nando that culminated in both fellows also getting slapped with one Strike each.

The Diamond lady has now had enough as she told her girl pal Cleo this evening, “I don’t want any more drama”.

The two Diamond dames turned the kitchen into their own little therapist’s office as the young actress poured her heart out to Cleo; who listened attentively and offered advice.

From their conversation it is clear that the Ghanaian woman is not yet over Nando but the problem is that she does not know where she stands with him. “He is so complicated and I don’t have time for that.

We only have 91 days in the House” she griped. Like a little lost puppy she searched for guidance in her friend.

“Should I withdraw more” she asked sincerely. “No you have withdrawn enough from him. Just give him time to come to you to tell you about his feelings,” Cleo counselled.

Oh Selly girl if you really want no drama then maybe it’s time to consider staying away from playboys; no?

End of the road for HaCleo?

There is trouble in paradise. Hakeem and Cleo’s relationship has hit a rocky patch and it seems getting out of this funk is going to be a tall order, especially considering that Fatima has wiggled her way into the fray .

During his Diary Session yesterday, Hakeem revealed how Cleo has lied to him many times since their relationship began. “I love Cleo but sometimes love isn’t enough.

I value honesty and transparency in a relationship but right now, we’re in a rocky phase. I don’t know if I can do this”, Hakeem said.

When asked to give a one word answer about whether he thinks Cleo is using their relationship as a strategy, the Zimbabwean housemate gave a firm “Yes!” Hakeem made up his mind after a conversation he had with Fatima after the Channel O party on Saturday night.

“Fatima told me to watch my back because Cleo is playing the game and the feelings might not be real”, Hakeem said. In her Diary Session, Cleo alluded to the treacherous waters that her relationship with Hakeem is skimming. “We’re going through a lot right now.

We’re trying to iron out our differences as we try to get to know each other more intimately.  We’re working towards staying together”, the sexy Zambian said. Will Hakeem and Cleo overcome this hurdle as The Chase continues or will these two call time on their relationship soon? — bigbrotherafrica.com
